How long will these pimples last?

4-6 weeks; Pimples tend to follow the same healing process as other wound types. There are different timelines for different pimple types.

If your pimples aren't inflamed (blackheads and whiteheads), then they may only last for one 4-week skin cell turnover cycle.

Several factors play a part in pimples lasting longer, mainly if you pick or squeeze them and they get a secondary infection.

Some skin care products and ingredients may help you get rid of pimples faster, but patience is essential.

If your pimples are not going away, it's always best to consult a specialist to ensure there aren't any underlying issues.
